Sailing to America

for oboe and piano

The works of the concert invite us on a transatlantic journey with the oboe and piano as the main vehicles. Ohana adored the ocean and composed while listening to its sounds from his home on the coast of Brittany. Edith Canat de Chizy, a student and researcher of Ohana’s work, brings the sound of lapping waves close to our ears while “sailing” with a piano. André Jolivet, a friend and musical co-traveler of Ohana, transports us to Venezuela through the sounds of a local boatman’s song. Remaining in Latin America, Thierry Pécou follows in Ohana’s footsteps and channels the rhythmic core of Afro-Cuban music. The journey is complemented by the works of two talented rising composers, Antonis Rouvelas and Michalis Paleologou, in their world premiere.

Thierry Pécou (b. 1965): “Perroquets d'Azur,” for solo oboe (1993)

- André Jolivet (1905-1974): “Chant pour les piroguiers de l'Orénoque,” for oboe and piano (1953)

Tesserae

Narrative reflections for solo oboe

Tesserae refer to the small tile parts, often cubic in shape, upon which a mosaic is created. Through this project, the oboe, a prominent emerging instrument in the solo repertoire of contemporary music-making, endeavours to incorporate a reflection of a mosaic, in a rather ritualistic manner: a programme of four individual music narratives inspired by diverse socio-cultural backgrounds of the past 50 years, which imaginatively correspond to each other in an attempt to redefine the individuality and identity of the contemporary sound-world, even on a transcendental level. Individual personalities and embodied experiences are expressed both disjointedly and simultaneously in an allegorical Mosaic (Vaida Striaupaitė-Beinarienė, 2002), and in resonance with each other in a contemplative Reflexion (Makoto Shinohara, 1970). The process is a call, a plea, or more poetically conveyed, an Anavoé (Andreas Tsiartas, 2021) towards coexistence and correlation In friendship (Karlheinz Stockhausen, 1978), recognition and acknowledgment of each other. Tesserae defines the human and the subconscious, the artist and the creator as a unified force, the core of our post-postmodern era that enables us to redefine our narratives and identities: an emerging reflective modernity for the 21st century.
